What is the Minimum Revenue Requirement?

The minimum revenue requirement is the amount of rental revenue that you must earn with your Storage Affiliate Advertising Van monthly in order to avoid paying out of pocket costs. The minimum revenue requirement varies monthly based on seasonal consumer trends.  As a general rule, if you rent the van every other day you will make enough money to offset the annual graphic fee and meet the minimum revenue requirement.
